A hobby can be described as an activity that a person regularly takes up in his leisure hours. Besides, this prevents the time from being wasted Instead it is spent on some useful activity. People have different hobbies. Some like to read, others prefer to do gardening or making things with their own hands. My hobby is gardening. I have a small vacant land behind my house. I grow vegetables and flowers on this plot. Looking after t plants takes up all my free time. I water the plants, spray fertilizers and insecticides and till the ground, I trim those flowering bushes which need trimming after each season. When the garden does not require my attention, I read about various plants in various plant books, journals, and magazines. Gardening gives me peace of mind. I feel relaxed after I spend a few hours in my garden. All the tension of office and home seems to fade away when I am in my garden. Another advantage of this habit is that the family is able to eat fresh vegetables from the garden. The flowers decorate and beautify my house with their color and fragrance. Gardening is a multifaceted hobby. It teaches the importance of green plants in our daily life. It also brings home the fact that life is precious and therefore should not be wasted away.
